Also, I would like to add that the 'digital newsletter' the last 2 years is bullshit. I used to love getting my huge LPU package every year (4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0) and then the newsletter coming as well. It was fun for me. Plus some of the posters from the newsletter are badass like the 6.0 one.
LPU7 had the last physical newsletter. I wish they continued with this, but i think it was pretty expensive to do this.
I'm fine with paying $60 a year, but im not a fan of the price of the new LPU stuff to buy, comparing to LPU9 (I shouldn't be, since its not 2009 anymore) but the prices for a T-shirt was like.. $5 or $6 +shipping. These days i think it was $10 for the LPUX wrist band. Those 2009 prices were pretty mental, that price would have been for the production of the T-shirt and nothing else.
I was a little disappointed with the device case, Its only suitable for an iPhone or anything bigger. My phone is smaller, and does not fit in there at all, the material choice wasn't the best. Even my iPod touch Gen2 with a case on it does not fit it. I have 3 i bought cheap off eBay, and i can't really do anything with them
The LPUX shirt fits really well, but the stitching around the neck has come out, and i had to stop wearing that. I need to get it fixed again.
I think we need to realise that its not 10 years ago anymore, and prices change. The LPU9 prices were so low, and it was just catching up for LPUX.
My recommendations (Too late now) for LPU11 are:
Make sure of quality in all package items.
More interactive competitions for members, even if there are no prizes, we don't care. Just a lot of small things we can take part in.
Maybe a half hour or less chat/show around of the studio. For example, a certain day where chester or mike are recording vocals for a song we can take listen. I know this happens in LPU/LPTV episodes, but to see that live would be great.
The price does not go above the current one.
I'd encourage Adam (or anyone) to comment on some of the things i've said.
